Death at the Crimson Altar is a new sauce from the Devon Chilliman named as the sauce has a dark red blood colour. Luckily for me unlike The Devon Chilliman my blood does not contain chilli seeds or any of the collection of super hot chilli included in this concoction.
All the chillies in this sauce have been grown in Devon, I hope some of you have been reading the monthly reports we get from The Devon Chilliman regarding his project at Channingswood Prison we are looking forward to this years reports.
Ingredients:- Moruga Scorpion 20%, Naga 20%, Red Savinas 10%, Carolina Reaper 5%, Vinegar, Beetroot, Mango, Salt, Mustard, Liquorice, Spices.
Bottle kindly provided by The Devon Chilliman
Well enough waffle, time to crack open the bottle and quench my blood lust. Opening the bottle and you just know this is going to be painful, there is that acidic aroma that comes from chillies just waiting to burn, a little hint of vinegar soon evaporates, so will I be slain on the Crimson Altar.
The simple answer is arrrrhhhh Yes, about 1/2 a teaspoon was by far enough, the searing heat is making writing this harder and harder ……a short break is required…… I would now like to say that the beetroot, mango, mustard and unusually liquorice all combined well with the chillies to….. But none of that would be true, I suffered greatly with hiccups and just a little chilli reflux before I could get to the fridge to find the milk and then off to the freezer for Ice cream.
I am sure I used to be harder that this or are these hot sauce makers/growers and becoming much more successful at the satanic arts of hot sauces, at £7.50 a bottle this packs a punch that this now ageing writer is starting to feel with a vengeance. This is a all natural sauce, no extract, for me it will be used very carfully to warm us my chilli.
Note: This was a few days ago, now recovered I have used this in cooking and am feeling much wiser, I have made a very tasty chilli with just 250g of best beef mince and a couple of finely chopped onions a little red wine and one small teaspoon of Death at the Crimson Altar, even that was enough for a good sweet, but the flavours from those chillies was worth it.
